The Mosaiced chair is part of the mosaiced furniture collection that finds its inspiration in the element ‘water’.
It’s made of restored chair from 1790, which belong to the style of Louis XVI. The chair is lightened through the sitting made of a transparent plexiglass plate. The colored mosaics above, which are immersed in resin, refer to the Romanesque period but through a contemporary use of materials.
The transparency permits a new way of using antique chairs, which makes them even more unique.
Hillsideout [antique art design] is a joint project by Andrea Zambelli and Nat Wilms which came to life in 2009 out of a mutual concern and discomfort for the degradation of abandoned sites in the Italian Apennines. Hillsideout expresses the need to transform the state of uselessness but also forgotten stories into practical functionality.View designer’s page
